Yep that's right! Next week is #10 and the final week of the season. Fall is definitely here and everything is going dormant.....I am ready to go dormant for a bit.   I will probably take a week to decompress and then I will be sending out survey's to all of you.  Please help me to serve... read more »

Posted on October 5th, 2020
Please remember that this weeks deliveries will be delayed until Thursday, Oct 15th! I am headed out of town on an adventure with my 16 year old staring early Friday morning. I am leaving farm operations for the week to my family and my farm apprentice. That means they be harvesting, washing, packing... read more »

I declare that fall is upon us. Week #8

Posted on October 1st, 2020
It's been really pleasant this week with the cooler temps and cold nights. The leaves on the trees are turning and falling.  And the nights are getting much longer. That means that the growing season is quickly coming to an end....To be honest I am looking forward to a little break. This... read more »

Greens are what is Happening! Week #7

Yep, get ready for loads of greens in the last part of the season.   The tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers are really winding down in the hoop house and you will see dwindling quantities of those items in the coming weeks. There are lots of various greens growing right now!  The are super... read more »

Made it Through the storm! Week #6

Posted on September 16th, 2020
Well the farm made it through the cold and snow last week! Unfortunately some crops were lost.  98% of the summer squash and zucchini did not make and the green bean plants also got frozen out. The most severe forecast never materialized. All in all I am very relieved!  The cold did... read more »

Really? Snow and cold! Fall Week #5

Posted on September 9th, 2020
The best laid plans are usually laid bare by what mother natural has prepared. As I write this I have not seen what has survived the "Winter Farm Apocalypse" of 2020. I spent all day Monday prepping the plots for the storm.  I harvested a bunch of produce, planted a bunch of beds for fall and... read more »

It's all seasonal! The slow down is starting Week #4

Posted on September 1st, 2020
September is here and what I call the "slow down" has started. I noticed it the beginning of last week with the slicer tomatoes. They just haven't been growing well and the amount of fruit set has really fallen off.  I also notice it now in the summer squash and some of the lettuce beds that were... read more »

Challenge upon Challenge..Week #3

Posted on August 25th, 2020
Good Lord what a growing season it has been! So hot and so dry the entire way through! To be honest with you all I am in panic mode right now.  September has really snuck up on me.  The hot temps have lulled me into thinking I have more time and I delayed some planting longer than what I... read more »

Oh the HEAT!! Week #2

Posted on August 16th, 2020
I am sick of it!  This entire season has been so hot and so dry! Farming in Colorado is already tough enough without having to deal with this. It makes it soooooo hard to seed and transplant.  I have so many different crops under shade cloth which is the only way I can grow certain veggies... read more »
